Nominate a plant that uses HART communications

End users are invited to nominate their plant for 2010 HART Plant of the Year Award; HART Communication Foundation seeks examples of exceptional application of HART technology.

05/12/2010


End users around the world are invited to enter their plant for recognition in the 9th Annual HART Plant of the Year Awards Program. Presented annually by the HART Communication Foundation, the HART Plant of the Year is the only international award presented to end user companies in the process automation industry to recognize the exceptional application of HART technology. Nominations are encouraged from all world areas and will be accepted through 15 July 2010.

“We are seeking the plant that has taken the capabilities of their HART instruments beyond configuration and calibration,” says HART Communication Foundation Executive Director Ron Helson. “Or, the plant that is using real-time diagnostics and process variables in HART-enabled devices integrated with control, information, asset management or safety systems.”

Selection of the HART Plant of the Year is based on a plant’s use of HART technology not on the size of the installation. Nominations are welcomed from end users and/or suppliers. Nomination forms and details are available at www.hartcomm.org.

The HART Communication Foundation is an independent, not-for-profit membership organization based in Austin, TX, that provides global support for the application of HART technology. The Foundation is the technology owner, standards setting body and central authority on the HART Communication Protocol, establishing and controlling new technology developments and enhancements that support the needs of the process automation industry. Founded in 1993, Foundation membership includes more than 235 companies worldwide. The group made the announcement on May 12, 2010.
